Very detailed and balanced history,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Between Giants: The Battle for the Baltics in World War II (Hardcover)
The historical context for the Baltic nations is well described. Each of the countries is thoroughly examined as the stages of the approach to war develop. There is lots of interesting detail and the prose style is that of a good writer.
The military detail is copious but never mechanical, never just a list of army units and locations. A very wide range of sources is cited for each chapter and this makes it a very authoritative account.
The war in the Baltics has not had much airtime in the literature of WW2 and this book does a good job to fill the gap. I would have liked a few more maps,though.
I thoroughly recommend this book to all those wishing to gain a better understanding of these events.
